Dark Roasted Blend's got a huge, motley, but all-around entertaining historical survey of WTF kid photos, check them all out.
But the one that hit me is right here: a dad from the 70s taking his kid on his skateboard.
You see, I am just about to buy my kid, the kid, her first skateboard. Which, even though I skated in my day, this nerves this picture wracks for me are exactly the same ones that are freaking out at the idea of my little baby riding a skateboard.
How do we do this when I'm paralyzed with parental anxiety? Or do I just suck it up and help her put her epic fail vids on YouTube?
DRB doesn't credit it, but this a photo of Herbie Fletcher, of the surfing Fletchers, which means this is probably Christian Fletcher, which means I have even less cred and confidence now. Also, my headline is now from the wrong side of the Orange Curtain.
